All Russian LARPing is, at some level, a flavor of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. LARPing.
The injured warrior players were disappointed to find that the medic characters took their roles just as seriously, bringing nothing but dirty rags and leeches.
War is Hell.
LARPing is awesome in Russia.

Around 3:15, Even after the other guy falls he keeps hacking away at his neck... with a hatchet.
Vodka-bottle battle horn.
As far as I can tell there's no "combat system" or "rules" per se, you just hit people with your wooden sword as hard as you can.
I want to see these guys hacking apart Nero participants, who defend themselves by holding up their 500 page rulebooks.

I don't think this is LARPing as much as it is reenacting.
The Templars vs. the Knights of Novgorod vs. Some Guy From Lyons vs. the Celts.... well... ok...
Disappointed they didn't they didn't use the tried and true Russian method of scorched earth.
Nobody ever remembers that the shield has an edge too.
If this video was shot in the middle of a busy russian town, I don't think I would find it particularly any stranger
I think Russia was fighting the cold war in the wrong decade.
That is the dumbest fucking song
No burning oil? Weak.
This isn't LARP, this is just Russia, and this is why Napoleon and Hitler failed.
I have a friend in the army who does stuff like this. Its not as intense but they do use wooden swords and armor.
Why? They not let him use a real gun or something?
When I feel the call of the wild I grab my 4-bore, blow up some trees, then kick any nearby bears to death and I'm only a part time bouncer, not some macho hardass Coast Guard.
I had some friends in the coast guard that sat around doing nothing.
I would think that it would be the ONE THING WE ARE PAYING MEMBERS OF THE ARMY NOT TO DO is get injured when they're NOT on the job. Seems like that is paramount to their job description.
Wow, I would be scared of these LARPers.
